Nowy Bytom, popularly known as Fryna in the
Silesian language because of its former name –
Frynsztad, is a district of Ruda Śląska. It is
situated in the eastern part of the city. The
settlement evolved only in the nineteenth and
twentieth century. In 1911, a monumental
church of Saint Paul was built in the center of
the village. Architect Johannes Franziskus Klomp
created an uncommon work, representing
mainly the neo-Romanesque style, together
with some early Christian and Byzantine
The monumental structure of the out-of-operation blast furnace of the steel mill
“Pokój” is one of the distinctive and eyecatching industrial facilities in the district of
Ruda Śląska, bearing the name of Nowy
Bytom. The future of the furnace is hazy. It
can be considered as an attraction and
adapted to the needs of tourism, or be
demolished. It is worth mentioning that in the
interwar period, the steel mill was the largest
on the Polish territory.
The workers settlement "Kaufhaus" is located on the border of two districts of Ruda Śląska, namely Nowy Bytom and Chebzia.

We can see them in Piotra Niedurnego Street. At the beginning of the last century, a shopping center “Kaufhaus” was erected for steelworkers and their families, from which the settlement took its modern name.
